Baby Gifts That Were Hard to Part With
I just finished surprising a friend with a couple of lovingly created garments for her baby daughter to grow into. I combined a Vogue 8060 with a Butterick 6175 with chenille, pinwale corduroy, and special touches of embroidered monograms inside the jackets, wonderful embroidered animals, covered buttons, and piping. Needless to say, the mother was overwhelmed particularly when the garments were “gift wrapped” in a custom baby garment bag with her daughter’s full name surrounded by miniature flowers. I had a ball doing this project and was sorry to see them go.
